OPERATION AND ITS APPLICATIONS
Understanding the prices of different categories of in the Nigerian markets will help in making decisions on the type to be used in setting up any kind of business that will involve operations.
had been a crucial operation in the whole jobs and will continue to be a base for most construction and fabrication works. From the popular application of operations in domestic materials like protectors, , and gates, etc. has become a major operation in the construction which almost all the sectors of are benefitting from it. The made from properly designed and welded joints of various parts brought together, are part of used by many in various areas of .
AND MADE USING OPERATIONS
A good example of such is the used in civil for the molding and vibration of for purpose. Another example is the shovels which some of the locally made types are formed through operations and such finds its application in the mechanized agricultural farming. These and more other examples are areas is playing important roles in today’s .
The prices of have not affected its demand in any way within the country. Despite the increasing market price, the introduction of new brands, and the grading patterns of the , etc. the demand has been at a stable rate. The reason for such steady demand could be attributed to the following factors:
Some of the welding machines do not last long when put to use.
Some companies now and train or employ a staff to have a skill for the purpose of handling any domestic problems or in emergency situations that may require .
Due to the high rate of unemployment, some unemployed graduates now undergo training and set up workshops or its related ventures.
There had been a continuous increase in the number of within the country.
These reasons and more others are why the demand for has been at it stable rate despite increasing cost.
There are different in Nigerian markets currently ranging from small to the biggest sizes. But for the purpose of clarity, I will be focusing on the small not meant for industrial applications. The reason for focusing on the prices of the small types is to avoid confusing the readers with the numerous brands and prices of the giant meant for industrial uses, such will be a topic for next article publication.
Based on the small , they are of two categories;
The Made in &
THE MADE IN
Knowing and understanding how the made in works will help in making the decision regarding the quality and whether to buy it or not. When it comes to making a choice on the someone should buy in the market, it will be based on the nature of the will be used for, the expected lifespan of the , and the available finance at buyer’s possession.
The made in can be found directly from the manufacturers in places like head market and markets mainly at road in . These places are where the are sold in large quantity and at the lesser price than other markets within the country.
Though other cities within the country also have manufacturers most of them barely produce in large quantity.
The good aspect of the made in is simplicity, durability, lesser cost, and easy repair or maintenance, etc. the has simple design making it simple for winding and rewinding during maintenance operations. So far, the has recorded a longer lifespan than some imported types of the same size. Above all, the costs less than the imported types of the same category.
CLASSES OF MADE IN & THEIR DIFFERENCES
There are two types of made in Nigeria welding machines, though having similar appearance the machine can be classified as either copper coil welding machine or aluminum coil .
The copper coil is costlier than aluminum type, it is more durable and has lesser size than the aluminum type. However, it appears as though the aluminum coil has higher power out for jobs than the copper coil , though yet to be proved.
The price of an original made in copper coil is between N25,000 to N40,000 based on the size and power output. Meanwhile, the price of aluminum coil made in should be within N12,000 to N20,000 depending on its size and power output.
When it comes to imported issues such as power output, brand name, the country that manufactured the , voltage bearing capacity, size, and coil materials, etc. will always affect the cost of the .
Despite some criticisms among the made in China , some of them cost even lesser than expected to make some to patronize it. However, made in Germany, Japan, and other countries do cost higher and in some cases, their prices could be very discouraging for that are not buoyant enough for such price.
With over 100 classes of imported in the market recently, l will like to detail the price to the most demanding and commonly used among commercial in and the class is based on its current bearing capacity.
Based on market research, all the imported from Asian countries including China having the current rating within 180A to 350A are sold between N40,000 to N50,000 in markets at their retailing prices. While those from other countries like Germany, the US, and France, etc. cost higher because some marketers claim they are more durable.
Based on the above details, it is necessary to always access any physically before buying it, and test their capacity and the coil material to avoid disappointment when the is put into use. Knowing the nature of you will be using the for will help to minimize cost since for plates not bigger than 5mm thickness will cost less than those meant to weld up to 12mm thick plate.
